1998年11月，当Volunteer Performance刚接触到瑞安勃润滑油时，完全没有想到植物油的润滑油产品可以用于发动机，尤其是高性能的赛车发动机。经过在车房和在赛道完整的测 试，他们完全有了信心。这些测试包括引擎的Superflow Dyno进行358立方英寸流量、18度、在5000-8500RPM进行3天的9.1 CR测试。在411赛道上，以5000到8500 RPM的转速进行25-50-125圈测试。车手Gary Helton密切监察油压力和温度，机油压力显著提高（15 PSI）和油温降低（30度），而这种压力和温度一直保持了整个测试。回到车房后，拆解发动机，检查所有轴承、气门组件和凸轮等（过去使用合成油会造成部 分的磨损和撕裂），这些问题在使用了RLI超高性能发动机润滑油后都没有发生。在结束评估时，没有发现任何形式的划伤或磨损，结果完全满意，开始使用瑞安勃产 品。
Volunteer Performance/Volunteer Chevrolet 的#44号赛车在1999年和2004年赛季南美全明星赛由Gary Helton创造了新的赛道记录，并在阿拉巴马州伯明翰夺得杆位。从此赛季和赛车都非常完美。进行日常发动机维护（气门弹簧，气门导管，滚子挺杆和发动机 轴承），发现极少磨损和疲劳。例如，目前使用的发动机轴承是聚四氟乙烯涂层型轴承（杆，主凸轮轴承），通常涂层会消失而现在至少75％的涂层仍然存在。此 外，滚子挺杆正常在400-600圈后会出现磨痕，而现在800圈后，仍然有没有可以观察到的磨痕。随着赛季的进行，＃44号赛车获得了其他3个杆位，几 个前5位和2个分站的冠军。＃44赛车完成了3000圈的比赛，并取得1999年和2004年南方全明星超级锦标赛的冠军。车队也进入NASCAR系列， 赢得了比赛。
“瑞安勃的生物基发动机油是迄今为止最好的润滑油。”Volunteer Performance车队Robbie White认为。
Thanks for great oils for our racing team, since 1999 our racing program has done nothing but move forward in performance & reliability.
In November 1998 when we were first introduced, I will admit that a vegetable oil based product seemed impossible. Then we tested the biobased lubricants in the shop, then on the track and with your willingness to follow my leads and suggestions the tests were a complete success. I felt totally confident with you and your products. Some of the tests included a Superflow Dyno 3 day engine session on a 358 Cubic Inch, 18 Degree, and 9.1 CR testing at RPMs of 5000 to 8500. Once we arrived at the track we installed the vegetable based oil and proceeded to run the next series of testing, 25-50-125 laps ranging from 5000 to 8500 RPMs. During the first 25 lap session, driver Gary Helton noticed by closely monitoring the oil pressure and temperature gauges the significant raise in oil pressure (15 PSI) and decrease in oil temperature (30 Degrees). This pressure and temperature held true through the remainder of the laps at 411 Motor Speedway. With this many laps on the engine I traveled back to the shop, disassembled the engine an inspected all bearings, valve train components and cam roller lifters (which I have found in the past take most of the wear and tear and have seen trouble when using synthetic oils). Problems were eliminated with RLI Super High Performance Racing Lubricants. At the end of my evaluation, I found no scuffing or gaulding of any kind and was completely satisfied and ready to take on the 2005 racing season with your products. The Volunteer Performance/Volunteer Chevrolet #44, along with Gary Helton behind the wheel, set a new track record in 1999 & 2004 season Southern All Star race and claimed the pole position in the Early Bird 100 held in Birmingham, Alabama. From that point on the season and race car were flawless. As I performed routine maintenance (valve springs, valve guides, roller lifters and engine bearings) on the engine, I discovered less wear and fatigue. For example, the engine bearings that I currently use are a Teflon coated type bearing (rod, main and cam bearings), normally the Teflon is either worn off or at least 75% of the coating still remained. In addition, the roller lifters that normally show scoring by 400-600 laps, again by using your products, at the end of 800 laps there were still no signs of scoring. As the season progressed the Volunteer Performance/Volunteer Chevrolet #44 claimed 3 other pole positions, several top 5 positions and 2 event wins. When it was all said and done #44 completed over 3000 laps and secured the 1999 and 2004 Southern All Star Super Late Model championship. We also moved into the NASCAR series and won our division.I have found that your Biobased Engine oil is the best lubricant thus far.
We are now using RLI Biobased Lubricants in the engine, transmission, and differential with great success. I am excited and feel fortunate to be pioneering light weight Biobased lubricants for the racing year industry with you and your company.
